program. >> the white house is on a charm offensive. last week, barack obama spoke on israeli television, addressing directly some of israel's concerns. > i have been crystal clear about my position on iran possessing a nuclear weapon -- that is a red line for us. it is something that would not only be dangerous for israel but would be dangerous for the world, dangerous for u.s. national security interests. >> in washington, it is no secret that obama does not have a good relationship with israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. even if they put on a united front in public, as here in washington last year. >> they have fundamentally different views of how to advance peace in the area. the president started off by pressuring israel to make concessions, and israel, understandably, resisted and resented, and it has been like that for the last four years, unfortunately. >> israel looks to the u.s. to safeguard its very existence. republicans are quick to point out that while obama visited egypt during his first term, he never went to israel. they accuse the president of pandering more t

the aisle, president obama and the senate, to commit to the same commonsense goal. the 2014 house republican budget sets a responsible precedent by ensuring our government lived within its means. just like millions of americans across this country, just like my constituents back in north carolina. i hear from them every day and they ask me why can't the federal budget be balanced. why can't washington get its spending under control. this proposal sets real, practical goals that will stop spending money we don't have, fix a broken tax code, protects and strengthens important priorities like medicare and national security, reforms welfare programs like medicaid, so it can deliver on the promises to deliver to those who are in most need. it also does repeal the president's health care plan. and it puts in place and allows aos put in place real sensible patient-centered reforl for health care. the house republican budget reduces the deficit by $4.6 trillion over the next 10 years. this budget offers a plan to expand opportunity and create jobs. while not sufficient by themselves, policy reforms

house discuss the implications of president obama's trip to the middle east next week. from washington institute, this is about 90 minutes. >> good afternoon. good afternoon. welcome to the washington institute. i'm rob the director of the inconstitute. i'm happy to welcome you here today. just at the outset, if i can please remind you, cell phones off, please, not just on vibrate but off completely. this event is being live-streamed for our thousands of fans around the world. this event is being broadcast by c-span, so, everything you say can and will be used against you. so, please too turn your cell phones off. we're gathered here today because president obama is off for the inaugural overseas visit of his second term and he is going to the middle east. going to israel, to the west bank, and to jordan. his itinerary is a very different than the itinerary of his middle east trip in the beginning of his first term. we're going to hear more about that. and i think the mission of this trip is very different than the mission of that inaugural trip of his first term. we're going to hear a
house tours, but president obama somehow found 250 million extra to give to the radical islamic government of egypt. it makes no sense at all. i have an amendment that would cut off aid to egypt unless president morsi publicly reaffirms the camp david accord and publicly recognizes israel and says he recognizes the peace treaty or they get no money because i don't think he'll publicly say it. i think he's catering to the radical islamic mob that he'll public do say before he gets more money. >> sean: tomorrow, you'll be speaking to the hispanic chamber in washington and unveiling what you call trust and verify which is your immigration plan. how is it different than say, what marco rubio is proposing in his plan or the president? >> well, what we're trying to do is add teeth to that bipartisan plan. we want to make sure that border security is it in there. as conservatives we're worried you're going to give legal status and give border security later, well, it never comes. like so many liberal promises. so what we're asking for is every year we get to vote on whether the border

will be working on. that's a new historical low for which the obama administration can take credit. house budget chairman ryan has produced a budget. chairwoman murray produced a budget. it's quite remarkable that the president has yet to submit a budget, even though the law requires it be done by february 4. the president plans to release his budget the week of april 8, two months overdue. this will be the first time a president has failed to submit a budget until after the house and the senate have acted. once again, on fiscal issues, the president is leading from behind. he set a new low for fiscal responsibility. during the past four years we spent well beyond our means. the gross federal debt has increased by $6 trillion as a result. now, unless we change course, we'll add another $9 trillion over the next ten years. the gross debt is now, and maybe by then will still be larger than the u.s. economy. it's approaching levels where economists agree deficits and debt are causing slower economic growth. during the past four years we witnessed president obama's theory of economic stimulus. we sa
, something president obama has described as a red line. let's get to chief white house correspondent jessica yellen. she's in jerusalem awaiting president obama as he heads in her direction for his trip to the middle east. we just heard, jessica, from senator dieann feinstein, the chair of the intelligence committee, she said president obama has a decision to make. are you getting any sense of where he's going to go on this? >> hi, brianna. this is not something the white house is yet commenting on, except that white house chief of staff, dennis mcdunn, speaking to jake tapper, if, and i underscore if, these reports are substantiated, it is his word. the president said the use of chemical weapons by the assad regime would be his red line. of course, we would have to see what kind of action the president would then take. and the white house, again, watching this very closely. we don't have comment from them at this point beyond what white house chief of staff dennis mcdone now said to jake tapper. he said if substantiated, it would be a game changer, not backing down from that language that t
, particularly at senior levels of the obama administration to some degree i think it's propelled the white house towards a greater reliance on drones, intelligence operations, on the use of small special forces teams to target terrorist cells around the world as opposed to trying to do more traditional nation building and remaking of society. perform. >> woodruff: ravij chandrasekaran and michael gordon, thank you for helping us look back. >> pleasure to talk to you. ruch rough we are collecting your iraq war stories, your reflections and lessons learned. find out how the share those on our home page. again, the major developments of the day, car bombings and suicide blasts killed 65 people in baghdad on the tenth anniversary of the u.s. led invasion of iraq. pope francis formally took office and called for the church to defend the weak and protect the environment. and the u.s. rejected claims by the syrian government that rebels used chemical weapons. >> woodruff: another newshour colleague is on a reporting trip abroad. ray suarez is in ireland and has filed his first dispatch online. hari sre
and is sound. >> current head is edward dimarco, which has put him at laggerheads with house democrats, who in january of 2012 asked president obama to replace ed dimarco. gerri: i have to talk about this idea of getting rid of mortgage deduction, right now it is being discussed for people with very bis mortgages or second homes, a lot of wealthy people who they say are okay with that, i look at the confluence of the story, mel watt on one hand saying we have to get more loans to people who may not be able to afford them. that is what we learned in the financial crisis. and let's take the deduct away from people who make the mortgage does that make sense to you? >> it does not, it is typical of convoluted way that washington thinks about issue, the issue is tax reform, if you do tox reform and lower rates mortgage interest deduct has to be on the table. i've been fascinated by proposal back that simon bowles commission said if we eliminated all of these deducts you could get tax rate to 8, 13 and 23%, much more simplified tax system, if you add them back it is hard to know where to stop. ge
. today president obama will leave for his first trip to israel as president. now, the white house is downplaying expectations for any major steps toward the middle east peace process, but of course the president's meetings and appearances have been very carefully orchestrated. he will check out the iron dome air defense missile launcher partially funded by the united states. he'll visit the dead sea scrolls at the israel museum in jerusalem to show he believes in the ancient jewish connection to israel. he'll lay a wreath at a zionist visionary theater tomb as well as slain prime minister's its ak rabin's grave. the president will have several meetings and working dinner with newly re-elected prime minister benjamin netanyahu. of course, no secret that the relationship between these two leaders hasn't always been a warm one. besides discussing peace between israel and palestine what a-- oe of the other major topics is iran's nuclear program. the president encouraged their leaders to move toward peace. >> now is the time for the iranian government to take immediate and meaningful s

from now, president obama leaves for his first trip to israel since moving in to the white house. in major announcements planned, but chemical weapons and iran's nuclear program are sure to be among the major issues discussed when he meets mideast leaders including taking a look at the list, you have netanyahu, mahmoud abbas, and king abdullah. jessica yellin is live in jerusal jerusalem. so why now? >> reporter: it's an excellent question and one a lot of people are asking. every visit to jerusalem by a u.s. president is seen as rich in symbolism and strategic significant. symbolically the president's visit makes sense. you could say his first visit overseas in his first term was to give a speech in cairo to the arab world. now he can say his first overseas visit, the second term, he gives a speech in israel to the jewish world and any sensitivities he irritated the first time around he will have addressed now. but strategically, many people here in israel are confused by the timing of this visit. other american presidents have come to israel at a time when, for example, peace n
and opposition are trading accusations tonight about the use of chemical weapons. president obama characterized activity as a crossing a red line, that theoretically would lead to har, consequences. chief washington correspondent james rosen reports from the white house. >> syrian state television broadcast images showing victims of what the government said was a chemical attack launched by the rebels outside aleppo. the regime cited 16 dead and 86 injured, most critically. >> this morning, missile was launched. that missile carried poisonous gases. the substance of the missile caused the immediate fainting, convulsion and death. >> kremlin steadfastly backed the assad regime with weapons and political support blamed the rebels. but opposition leaders swiftly denied responsibility for attack in any event would have exceeded the known military capabilities. >> the rebels don't have access to chemical weapons. they don't have access to watch the chemical weapons. >> indeed the regime of the dictatorial president bashar assad long been believed to possess one of the largest arsenals of biological
that would change my calculus said president obama in 2012. we will get reaction from the white house on this that will come at about ten: 30 as we get a closer look what is going on in syria. let's look at some of the known chemical weapons capabilities. it is estimated that sir was ha several tons of must -- mustard gas and nerve agents. they have 600 warheads capable of delivering those chemical agents. syria has an estimated 50 sites associated with their chemical weapons program. this is obviously big news. as the president said in the past this could change the calculus of this situation, bill. bill: martha, this is a war that has gone on for two years. this is the region we're looking at. turkey up to the north and west, israel to the south and jordan. you have the long shared border with the country of iraq to syria's east. capital city of damascus. what we believe to be the story of the moment, well north of damascus, fleer the town of a help bow -- aleppo. that is the largest town in northern syria. more than two million people call aleppo home. it was in this region the inc

the obama administration is doing it again. >> did you see the pictures of president obama playing golf with tiger woods this weekend? neither did we. >> the media covering the president was shutout. the press corps complained. >> fox news' ed henry speaking in his role as white house correspondents' association president said, "it is not about golf. it's about transparency and access in a broader sense." >> the president should have in all fairness due to transparency released some photographs of him either teeing off with tiger or perhaps when they finished. the american people deserve to see what the president of the united states is doing. >> stephen: absolutely. this is about transparency. about a free press holding our leader accountable. i mean it's one thing to keep us in the dark about a fleet of flying robo-assassins. but a round of golf on your day off? where's the judicial oversight? oh, i suppose white house lawyers have drawn up some convoluted legal justification for using a five-wood on a par three! there are a lot of holes in this story, folks. specifically, 18. america
, this is charlie rose. >> rose: president obama will travel to the mile east this week. it will be his first time visiting since he entered the white house four years ago. he will meet newly reelected prime minister benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem on wednesday. the president has often been criticized for his distance relationship with the israeli leader but many see this visit as a chance to make things better. much is at stake as israel grapples with a nuclear iran and a lagging peace process. joining me, aaron david miller, vice president of woodrow wilson international center for scholars and a former middle east advisor to democratic and republican secretaries state. here in new york, steven cook of the council on foreign relations. i'm pleased to have both of them back on this program. let me begin with you steven what's the hope of this trip? >> well, the hope is at least officially for the president to reset his relationship with the israeli leader and the israeli people. as you pointed out. there's been some difficulty in the relationship between the leaders. there's been rhetoric the way
